Soon-to-be Chicagoan here. Moving into a studio around river north very soon. I'm buying my furniture from a combination of Crate & Barrel, Ikea and West Elm. The bed, tables, chairs, desk etc. will come in boxes and will need assembly. Just wondering if you guys would know where I could hire someone to put it together for me for a couple bills or less?

Thanks.

I don't know but you're smart. Moving in and having to put together furniture is like being in h*ll with no ice water.

Lol. Well to be honest, I'd fail miserably even if I tried, so I'd rather leave it to someone else and pay them for their time.

West Elm will assemble and deliver the items for you. I'm not sure if the other stores you mentioned have similar services, but it might be worth asking.

Caution about hiring anyone for anything. What if you hired some duffus to do the work and he stuck a screwdriver through his hand and then tried to sue you. Also rember "nannygate" Get someone through a temp service.
